Last year on Valentine’s Day, I made homemade crayon rubs inspired by a gift that my daughter had received. We had a lot of success with our DIY crayon rubs from last year and wanted to try them again. I don’t know how many of you used to play with, fashion plates(affiliate link) as a child, but they were a favorite of mine. I thought this would be a fun idea for my little girl.

All you need to make these are cardboard, pencil and a low temp glue gun. We have also included printable templates for your convenience. If you choose to use the templates, you will also need scissors and a glue stick.
Cut the cardboard into 3X3 squares. Lightly draw in simple clothing designs or print and cut out our printable templates and use a glue stick to glue them on to the cardboard. Use a glue gun to trace your drawings.
Place a top and bottom clothing section under a piece of paper and use different colored crayons and rub them over the cardboard pieces until images appear.
Mix and match your pieces to create different outfits. Try this method to make shapes, letters, or any other designs. They are so simple to make and a lot of fun to play with.
